Hello Strong Babes!
I have been struggling hard for the last year to grow these legs, but they are crazy stubborn, and therefore still my weakest point. Well this week I added a new addition to my leg workouts, and I think it’s going to be a game-changer: Front Squats.
Check out these legs today!
Regular squats are a must-do for leg-day champs. The front squat variation has the weight placed on the shoulders – this forces the quads to do more of the work. This is totally one of those exercises that totally exhausted my central nervous system. I love the intensity and quad activation this variation brings!
Changing up your routine can be good for your body and your mind. Yes- it feels good to mix it up sometimes!
Thinking of trying something new? Try something that surprises your body – it might inspire you to go into overdrive and work that leg-day extra hard.
I followed the front squats with:
- back or ‘regular’ squats
- stiff-legged deadlifts
- calf extension
Now that I’m incorporating these in on leg day, I can’t wait to see my progress a few weeks down the road!
Have you ever done front squats before? What did you think of this variation? Let me know!
